Jann Watt-Drake

Career Strategist and Director


*NZ’s first 360◦ Reach-Certified Personal Branding Strategist

Jann Watt-Drake, New Zealand's first Reach-Certified Personal Branding Strategist is passionate about helping motivated mid-career professionals find their career mojo. Personal branding is a key to helping people focus on the positives in their lives, and Jann's mission is to be a catalyst for helping others unlock and ignite the what’s next. In August 1999 after observing a number of highly talented people feeling unfulfilled in their roles, Jann stepped out of her corporate role in Organisational Development and launched de novo to enable her to follow her purpose of inspiring others to be the best they can be (and more). Jann has a reputation of being a forward thinker, yet always practical, quickly tapping into the barriers that are holding people back and giving them the tools and confidence to achieve their career goals. To benefit others, she shares her knowledge, life experiences and network with authenticity and optimism. She is a firm believer that networking is all about sharing. This is clearly seen in the number of coffee chats Jann fits in to her busy week with people within her network. Jann loves one-on-one coaching and is also adept working with groups in the role of facilitator or trainer. She has spoken at conferences on networking and the importance of managing "brand me".
